Indonesian Gamelan – Budget – 10 Player Class Pack – Buddies – Video

Andy Gleadhill takes a detailed look at the Indonesian Gamelan – Budget – 10 Player Class Pack – Buddies. This 10 player Indonesian Gamelan pack is perfect for lunchtime, after school groups or for smaller class groups of pupils from age 6 upwards and for community groups of any age. It’s excellent value for money and contains all the items you need to get your own Gamelan ensemble off of the ground: playing, performing and composing.

Full details of the pack:

The Budget metallophones are light and compact, but well made, and have a very good sound quality. The Budget range is a good choice if budget is limited or if portability is key.

Also included are two teaching guides by world music expert Andy Gleadhill: Indonesian Gamelan and Percussion Buddies. The Indonesian Gamelan book will take you from basics through to your first performance in just 10 lessons and there’s plenty of repertoire for a year or more of playing with ten pieces, suggestions on teaching delivery and a blank resource to photocopy to assist with planning composition work. The Percussion Buddies book will show you how to develop percussion accompaniments for almost any piece, whether Gamelan, drumming, choral, ukulele or any ensemble.
